Paris 1830. Octave, betrayed by his mistress, sinks into despair and debauchery. His father's death leads him to the countryside where he meets Brigitte, a young widow ten years his senior. Octave falls in love passionately, but will he have the courage to believe in it?
Diabolical adaptation of Alfred de Musset's novel, the emblem of "the malady of the century", Sylvie Verheyde's third feature is a faithful view of the spirit of the 19th century. This melancholy poem is enhanced by a sophisticated rhythm and a nervous camera and by the stunning performances of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Peter Doherty as the disenchanted lovers
